A gritty political-crime thriller that centres on the complex relationships between crime reporters and the police, Shoot the Messenger follows Daisy Channing (Elyse Levesque), a young reporter trying to balance a messy personal life with a burgeoning career. Things begin to go sideways for Daisy when she witnesses a murder she thinks is gang related, only to find herself slowly drawn into an interconnected web of criminal and illicit sexual activity that reaches into the corridors of corporate and political power. It's the kind of story that will destroy lives, including those of her own family. With help from her editor Mary Foster (Alex Kingston), co-worker Simon Olenski (Lucas Bryant), and lead homicide detective Kevin Lutz (Lyriq Bent), Daisy uncovers a cover-up so scandalous it could bring down the government. The dynamic cast also includes Hannah Anderson as Daisy's sister Chloe Channing, Ari Cohen as Attorney General Sam Charles, Edie Inksetter as Lutz's partner Jordana Ortiz, Al Sapienza as real estate developer Eric Lawson, Nicholas Campbell as Daisy and Chloe's dad Henry Channing, and features special appearances by The Barenaked Ladies' Ed Robertson as Greggor Woods, The Toronto Raptors' Jamaal Magloire as Orlandio Spence, and ex-NBA player turned television star Rick Fox as Anthony Telpher.
